Starting from painting, I have always worked very colour-oriented. Via colour photography and the specialization in experimental colour prints, I came across digital photography and finally animated film. Starting point is the C-print and the digital photo, which I process into films. My films thus can be labelled “photo films”, shootings do not exist. All procedures are included and the respective technique subordinates to the concept of ideal colour presence in the context of content. Themes of the films are flowers and implement of war, intending to reverse perceptions: a small change in the perspective with flowers in an urban context, extraction of colour from blossoms, bombers as colour intoxication. The audience is primarily involved into the images through the slowness and colour intensity, to arrive via the perception of the beautiful at a contentrelated reflection. The “photo films” come with sound, a further dimension thus is added.
In preparation of the exhibition BLUMEN UND KRIEGSGERÄT (“Flowers and Implement of War”), the cooperation with the Berlin based architectural designers skototparc, adds the extension towards the object. Target is to translate the time flow of the film into the spatial, to work with the confrontations of visual/haptic, virtual/concrete, light/material etc; in doing so I chose embossed printing as a central theme for the film. The object is tuned to the film, the film is developed for the object.
